“Wealth, by its nature, is not easily acquired because wealth, if understood correctly, is synonymous with ‘that which is
desired but difficult to acquire’.” -Mark Ford

Public pensions nationwide are crumbling. Legal loopholes are widening. If you don’t take action to protect yourself and your loved ones, you could be left with nothing….  this is not a hypothetical.

In 2001, the vast majority of pensions were fully funded. Generally speaking, “well-funded” means above 80%. But 50% funding or less is considered the “crisis point.” It’s extremely difficult to come back from 50% or less.

According to a new report from The Pew Charitable Trusts – an independent research organization – pensions in Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Kentucky, and New Jersey are less than 50% funded. In fact, New Jersey sits at the bottom of the list… its pension is only 31% funded.

If you’re one of the tens of millions of affected Americans, you should know… you have zero control over what happens.

But there is a solution….  You can move money from your pension….  This gives you total control of your money.” -David Eifrig

“My self-esteem was such a difficult burden for me to carry around I had to constantly let others take care of it for me. That’s a bad mistake.  Sooner or later, they can’t carry your self-esteem for you and you fall apart.” -James Altucher

“People love simple and preposterous lies. They much prefer them to the truth.  Truth is elusive.  Difficult to discover.  Infinitely nuanced.  Hard to hold on to.  Each tiny bit of truth comes at a high price….  Nor does truth make you feel good. Like a magnifying mirror, it shows blemishes.  You squirm in your seat when you see it.  Often, you want to turn off the lights. 

Not so with myth.  It comes right over to you, fawns over you, airbrushes your photo, and Botoxes your face.  It flatters you with weak light and strong angles.  It pretends you are the noble master and it is merely the humble slave… willing to do your bidding.” -Bill Bonner
